Today’s episode of Shack’s Arcade Corner takes a look at Mega Man: The Power Battle. The cabinet didn’t see as wide of an arcade release as other Capcom titles, such as Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, but there were a few of them available in the US in the early 90s.

        This is a good article!

        However, can I make a suggestion? (I also made this suggestion to Ozzy in a shackmessage)

        When an article has both a body and a chatty post associated with it, can you include more detail in the chatty post?

        I understand that you don't wan to included the entire text, when an article is a pure text article, but if an article is a video or podcast, it would be nice to get more info included in the chatty post.

        For example, this article was represented in the chatty as:
        "Shack Staff posted a new article, Shack's Arcade Corner - Mega Man: The Power Battle"

        Which is nice, but not very detailed.

        A better chatty post would be:

        "It’s Wednesday, which means we’ve got another episode of Shack’s Arcade Corner for you to sit back and enjoy on your hump day.

        The second example is more informative and enticing than the first.

        I get that you wouldn't want to be so wordy, if the the article was a text-based article. But in that case you would still want to make an informative and enticing blurb to follow the link to the actuall article.

        For example, if you got the awesome opportunity to interview John Carmack, the chatty post shouldn't say:
        "Ozzy interviews some guy"

        Instead, you should say:
        "Ozzy interviews John Carmack and talks about Occulas Rift, the steam competition and Doom 4!
        Click here to read interview
        "

          BTW, that link at the end of the first example would just link to the article that says the same thing as the chatty post. Plus the embedded video, which is the point of the article.
